Last Tuesday night, Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey conducted a Question and Answer session on his Facebook fan page. Fans were invited to field any questions they wanted and Ramsey responded to as many of them as he could.

Here are some of the more interesting questions that were posted and answered by the Arsenal star – through Facebook.

What’s your favourite food and movie?

Favourite movie is the Bourne Series. As for food, I like a good Sunday Roast.

If you were not a footballer what would you be doing career wise now?

I would have tried to make it in rugby.

Who is the funniest player in the dressing room?

Either (Lukas) Podolski or (Emmanuel) Frimpong. They’re always trying to mess around and make people laugh.

How did you deal with the negative things said about you before this great (Arsenal) season?

You don’t read too much into what is said as long as you have belief in yourself and the manager has belief in you.

What do you like to do outside of football?

I like to play golf and I am hoping to get my handicap down this summer.

What’s the best thing about playing in the premier league?

It’s always unpredictable and as you can see, it’s so tight this season that it’s exciting for the fans and the players as well.

What is your favourite goal?

For Arsenal this season, it was probably the Liverpool one (scored in November last year) – the best one in my career. But I really enjoyed the one I scored against the England U21s (in October 2008).

Who would you least like to get into a fight with from the team?

That would be Podolski because you never know what to expect from him. He’s crazy but I still think I could take him.

Would you rather win the Champions League or World Cup?

That’s a tough choice. Either one would be a massive achievement so I’ll be happy with either.

If you could adopt any wild animal of your choice, what would it be and why?

I don’t know if there’s a specific animal but I went to Africa in the summer. I like seeing the animals in their natural habitat and I was fortunate enough to see an elephant orphanage. It was a moving experience.

Who are your favourite singers?

I like the Arctic Monkeys Band – love their new album.

Which team will win the world cup?

I think probably Spain or Germany, but Belgium might have an outside chance of winning it with the team and players they have.

What is the biggest highlight of your career?

It would be captaining Wales for the first time against England (in March 2011), even though we lost.

Who was the player you loved watching while growing up?

Graham Kavanagh, because he was the Cardiff captain and played in my position so that’s who I looked up to – and wanted to aspire to be like.
